Can you remember the very moment when you realized that you were in love? That moment of recognition, for most of us, is precious and indelible. We have been enchanted, and we finally recognize all the symptoms. This instant of giddy and light-headed, daily concerns become trivial, and life is beyond good, it is transcendent. This instant of awareness, the moment of love's recognition, is the theme of this exquisite album from Emile Pandolfi. His insightful and haunting arrangements of these classic Broadway songs, illuminated by his masterful touch on the piano, truly do this theme loving justice. Emile has captured for all of us love's enchantment, and hearing is believing.
Gigi (from "Gigi"); If I Loved You (from "Carousel"); They Say It's Wonderful (from "Annie Get Your Gun"); I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face (from "My Fair Lady"); If Ever I Would Leave You (from "Camelot"); Secret Love (from "Calamity Jane"); Almost Like Being In Love (from "Brigadoon"); Edelweiss (from "Sound of Music"); Hello, Young Lovers (from "The King and I"); Hey There (from "Pajama Game"); Some Enchanted Evening (from "South Pacific").
This cd should be titled, the best of broadway........
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This will be the second cd for me to buy by Emile. It seems like he just keeps getting better and better. I guess it's all those spins of his music on my cd player. Whatever, the reason for it, I truely like Emile and his magic on the keyboards. He is a natural at playing solo.For this project, Emile choose to perform all of our favorite hits from broadway. What a great idea this has been. I find that each of these pieces are my vary favorite tune.The only drawl back I can find with this cd is the improvising that Emile uses. Sometimes it is great and everything works and other times it is just boring. There is a fine line between how much improvising is good and when it should stop.In conclusion I would like to recommend this cd. The good more than out weighs the bad."
